Samuel Adams Alpine SpringSamuel Adams Alpine Spring

Brewed by:
Boston Beer Company (Samuel Adams)
Massachusetts, United States

Style: Kellerbier / Zwickelbier

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 5.50%

Availability: Spring

Notes / Commercial Description:
Borne of our brewers’ many trips to Germany, Alpine Spring features a unique blend of lager attributes: the balanced maltiness and hoppiness of a Helles, the smoothness and slightly higher alcohol of a traditional spring bock, and the unfiltered appearance of a Kellerbier. The beer is brewed with Noble Tettnang hops to add a unique, bright orange-citrusy aroma and flavor.

pours a cloudy medium gold in color thick two finger white head and lots of sticky lace that both hold up very well. strong bold citrus and a light floral aroma. nice blending of the orange citrus taste with the yeast and hops. smooth medium mouthfeel and slight pepper taste. this beer wins on all counts. i see this beer going a long way with sam adams. definitely one of their better brewed beers.

Appearance - honey colored, unfiltered with lots of sediment, and a frothy white head that leaves some nice lacing.

Aroma - It smells of honey, sweetness, citrusy and floral hops, some very slight malt, and lemon citrus.

Taste - Lemon zest, some pepper spice, a tad bit of grain, and then the floral and citrus hops come in, finishing off with a mouthful of white breadiness, which lingers in the aftertaste.

Overall, this is the best lager I have ever had thus. It's the beer I always dreamt of finding. This is what I would have tried to brew if I had ever brewed beer.

Absolutely perfect for my taste.

Let's not fool many of us. We love beer, and this is one of the best drunk beers by Sam Adams. Goes down delicious from the beginning until the 12th. As a famous drunk once said: "brevity is the soul of wit" 250 characters... ... ... ...
